If you have left over Easter candy, like most parents do, but don't want your kids to just sit around and get hoped up on sugar, then we have found just the thing!
Peeps Slime! And the best part, it's edible. So after the kids are done making a mess and playing with their candy slime, they can eat it too!
Our very own Lori Givens tried this recipe at home with her little one, and it was a raging success!
We have linked the recipe and ingredients needed down below, and have included pictures as a helpful guide.
Some things you will need to get started:
-5 sleeves of Peeps (any color)
-Cornstartch (or confectioners sugar to make it more edible)
-Vegetable Oil (or a neutral flavor oil to make it more edible)
-A tablespoon measure
-Bowl (or multiple depending on how many colors you have)
-Spoon for stirring
** If you are planning on doing this activity with smaller children, adult supervision might be required when handling the hot bowl and the microwave**
Step 1: Break apart the sleeve of 5 peeps and add them to your microwave safe bowl
Step 2: Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil (or oil of your choice) to the bowl of peeps
Step 3: Put the bowl of peeps in the microwave for 30 seconds
Step 4: Remove the bowl from the microwave (this is where the adult supervision comes in)
Step 5: Add a tablespoon of cornstarch (or confectioners sugar) at a time and smush it into your softened peeps. The peeps will be warm to on the hot side so adults should start off this process until it cools down. It is your choice to use a spoon or not in this step. Make sure you add a total of 3 tablespoons to each batch until the point that it is no longer sticky.
Step 6: Continue to kneed and stretch and play with your slime!
